packages moved from [community] -> unsupported

After a repo cleanup discussion a number of packages were moved from [community] -> unsupported. This means these packages currently have no maintainers, they are orphans.
You are all free and encouraged to adopt and maintain any of these packages!

The list:

aoeui
asterisk
awesfx
basilisk
bitterbpp
byzanz
childsplay
childsplay-plugins
codeblocks
cowbell
cupsddk
dejagnu
dellfand
doxygenfilter
fvwm-themes-devel
gtk2hs
gtubeclock
haskell-binary
hwinfo
kdedecor-crystalgl
kdenlive-svn
kima
kio-sysinfo
klogoturtle
libggi
libggimisc
libgii
libgiigic
linuxdcpp-ru
lirc-xmms-plugin
man2texi
microdc2
mowitz
php-gtk2
pyglet
qdevelop
qsa
rafkill
rapidsvn
rb_libtorrent
sdcv
siag-office
sidplay
slurm
tweak
uucp
winki
yakuake-split
zaptel
zsh-lovers

Also, I think most of this list has moved to unsupported

ddclient 3.7.3-1
fpconst 0.7.3-1
gnu-efi 3.0a-2
gpomme 1.12-1
lxmusic 0.1.1-2

Re: packages moved from [community] -> unsupported

How to maintain one of these packages?
I'm interested in maintaining "hwinfo" because I think it's a very useful tool for getting system information and it's often needed for getting hardware-support in communities.

go to the AUR and make sure you get a username if you do not have one yet, find the package using the search interface and choose to adopt it smile

For more information read this wiki page.

Re: packages moved from [community] -> unsupported

champus:  Have a look at http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR and the links it provides.  If you feel comfortable maintaining a PKGBUILD for the package you are interested, adopt it.  You can always ask for guidance in the PKGBUILD part of the forums.

Edit: Beaten by 10 seconds!

Re: packages moved from [community] -> unsupported

All right, all done, let's maintain ;-)

Edit:
Well, I even can't find any developer-website for hwinfo. Even at SuSE there are no information about it (but they have been the prior developers). Does somebody know a developers mail-adress or any other information about the hwinfo-project?
One more thing, every entry for hwinfo13.48 in google links to the Archlinux-AUR. It seems like there does no official hwinfo 13.48 exist (but in AUR). Possibly the available version in UNSUPPORTED is inofficial oder faked version-nr?

for all other people start a new thread about such things in the appropriate forum section.

@champus:
use as url: http://download.opensuse.org/distributi … /suse/src/

you can find the hwinfo src rpm there, which you should use as source.
in the build part of the PKGBUILD extract the rpm with rpmextract.sh, which gives you the source tarball. From there I think you can figure out what to do next.

Re: packages moved from [community] -> unsupported

Well, I often extract RPM-Packages via rpmextract but I didn't know where to find official hwinfo releases - now I know. Thanks a lot.
